Used by the European elite beginning in the late 17th century, birth announcements have been used by the royal class to announce the new member of their family. Hot wax seals were used to close the envelope and servants would hand deliver them to their recipients via horseback.
Last time I checked, I am not one of the elite and I certainly don't own a horse. My wife and I have however dedicated the past few nights towards creating our own birth announcements. While we did not handwrite them like in the past, we used a new modern technology called the computer. We are curious to see peoples opinions on our creations. Please leave a comment with your opinions. We are looking to use one of these designs if everything works out.
